News From Punjab: Truck kills rider & fled (o/t: scoot)

Postby Micronaut » Sat Jan 22, 2005 12:52 pm

I know this isn't a moped, but it came into my inbox tagged as moped. Somehow, 'news from punjab' sounded kind of funny, as though your Indian friend was telling you something. I knew Punjab was a name but didn't know it was a province as well. I started looking at the local news from this link and was suprised to see how similar it was to what might be in a US paper. So, ride safe, avoid trucks and check out the news from Punjab:

PUNJAB/Abohar
KILLED: Maninder Singh, son of Avatar Singh, a resident of Mubarakpur in Dera Bassi region, was crushed to death when a truck hit his scooter, on the Fazilka road here on Wednesday. The driver of the truck has been booked by the police under Sections 304A and 279 of the IPC. He, however, fled from the scene.


just to make sure there's no confusion, this incident is a tragedy and I thought the link to their local news was interesting so I posted the story. I know 'Punjab' is used as racist slang in some areas and that's not cool at all. Wayne
